With the P222 you can only access SSA on the controller if the MS G10 is set to legacy boot. If set to UEFI boot, you can not access SSA on the controller.

I already set to legacy boot but only see the P222 initializing then continue boot from usb , i can't see the SSA , can you tell me the step to show the SSA ?

During initialization doesn't it give you the opportunity to enter SSA?
You could boot the server with the offline SSA utility from a USB and configure the P222 that way.

Make sure the firmware and BIOS are up-to-date on the server and RAID.

Hello everyone - new MS G10 owner looking to decide if I want to add a proper SmartArray controller.

 

To clarify, does the G10 refuse to boot in UEFI mode with a P2xx or P4xx SA controller?  Or is it just you can't get into the SSA BIOS to configure arrays during POST?

 

One further semi-related question - can you fit a 3.5" drive in/above the optical bay?

 

I've spotted this 4 x M.2 SATA SSD unit

A P4x0 would allow one channel to the 4 x 3.5" bays, then the other channel to a group of M.2 SSDs.
